Sleeved on 11/20, came home last night. Feel much better in my own bed and moving around my house. The gas pressure is real! Burping all the time. Working on my liquids and just a tiny bit of Protein today. Still feeling very bloated! Little by little I’ll get there.

One day at a time you will do well.

I was sleeved on June 21st and I my original weight was 238, my surgery weight was 209, so in the fourth month I'm down to 150 pounds as of today, I have gone from an 18-20 size down to a size 12. I don't exactly meet the food requirements that they have because my appetite is satisfied with such little portions of food. I didn't have any gas problems, not really much pain, my hair is only thinning out but I was taking Biotin right when I started my very first visit with the nutritionist, biotin has helped me alot, it grew my eyelashes, it helped my eyebrows grow back in, and I hear about people having their hair come out in clumps, but the surgery was easier than I thought it was I left the hospital the very next day.

Hey Mary! Walk walk walk! It is probably from the gas. Speedy recovery!

Had surgery on nov 21. I broke down just before getting sedated. I was terrified. All went pretty well. The next thing I knew was my hand on fire from a potassium drip. My blood pressure dipped super low as did my potassium levels. So I was in recovery for 5 hours. My pressure stayed low all through the next day. I’m home now though and doing fine. I’m only feeling super sore when getting up. Not walking much yet. I’m sore mostly in my neck and thighs. Not sure why but assuming it is from the way I’m getting up and sitting down. The gas issue is a struggle but the pain passes quickly. sleeping at home is a struggle. Best sleep so far is on the couch. No nausea but the gave me Patches and oral medication for that. Now it’s time to sip sip and sip some more.

Yes no pain just get even fuller faster. Not at all press bout purée food because now I have to really think before I eat. liquids for me was kinda better even though I complain about it. I didn’t have to plan when it was just liquids. I have to make a choice drink or eat can’t dont do both together. This is really my test.

Odd issue. I just on the scale and found I weigh 6 lbs more than the day of surgery. I’m assuming this will go away quickly and that it is due to all of the iv liquids than gave me because of my blood pressure. Did anyone else notice that?

Yup, I weighed myself the day I had the surgery when I was walking around with the nurse and it said I gained 4 pounds. Took a few days to lose it but totally normal. Lots of swelling and fluids going on!

      Surgery Next Tuesday!!!!!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
